Dr Julius Awakame, who is a psychiatrist, is under investigation by the General Medical Council (GMC) and conditions have been imposed on him by an interim orders tribunal (IOT).
The GMC can refer a doctor to the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) at any point during an investigation if they think it is necessary for the protection of the public or in the interests of the doctor. These tribunals do not determine the facts of what happened but do a risk assessment to determine whether temporary protection is needed while a full investigation is carried out.
He is therefore now subject to conditions on his future career, including telling the GMC of any new post he takes up, the location and all the contact details of his next job.
He has also been sacked from his job at Mount Gould Hospital in Plymouth.
Dr Awakame must also be supervised in all of his posts by a clinical supervisor, tell any new employers of his conditions and inform the GMC if he moves to a non-NHS post.
He trained at the University of Ghana in the nineties and later worked in Essex, where he was also fired from the North Essex Partnership Foundation Trust.
While there in 2016, it was reported that he gave a patient the name of a Nigerian Christian television channel, Emmanuel TV, and encouraged an exorcism after she said she was a childhood victim of a satanic paedophile ring.
His behaviour was cleared as it was decided he was acting empathetically and appropriately to what he understood.
